I wanted to be a concert pianist
All I needed to do was practice
No hurry
I had lots of time

When I became an adult
I wanted to be a doctor or a lawyer
All I needed to do was go to college
No hurry
I still had time
I’ll just go to a movie and dinner

I am now quite old
And in a hurry to still become
I’ll write a best seller
I can do that
But first I’ll take a nap
